stormy day

I am looking outside
listening to the bitter wind

bushes dripping
hail showering
angry thunder banging
bitter wind howling
lonely cats meowing
wet doors squeaking

Listening to the bitter wind
I am inside looking outside.


Stormy day AD

I am inside,looing outside,
listening to the bitter wind,

hail breaking,
rain scattering,
decrepit dogs lifting,
broken umbrellas flying,
dripping ranchsliders slamming
enormous trees swaying

I am inside looking outside,
listening to the bitter wind

stormy day by D.J.L

I am inside,looking outside,
listening to the bitter wind,

enormous storm coming,
clothes blowing,
lightening growling,
humongous trees creaking,
beautiful dogs running,
expensive chair crashing,

Listening to the bitter wind,
I am inside looking outside.


Stormy day

Iam inside looking outside,
listening to the bitter wind,

hail splattering,
tables tipping,
huge hail banging
heavy rain hitting,
power lines falling,
lonely cats meowing.

Listening to the bitter wind,
I am inside looking outside.

Space,Stars and Planets

Look at this planet.It is Mars. It is called the red planet. Mars has lots of rocks
on it. We can't live on Mars because there isn't a lot of oxygen. Mars is the
4th planet from the Sun. Mars is after Earth.

By D.J.l


The Earth is as big as a ball. It is big and blue. The Earth has lots of water. If we don't have any water we would not survive.


Saturn is a planet that has a lot of moons. It has a ring around it and a ring on the top of it. To live on the planet you would need a whole supply of food and a rocketship to fly there. The closest planets to Saturn are Uranaus and Neptune.

What are the rings of Saturn made from?

Shining rings of billions of tiny chips of ice, rock,and dust.

Fables- by Room 20

Room 20 have been reading and writing Fables. This is an example of one fable written by one of the Year Six students. (K.S)

Monday, August 17, 2009


Once upon a time in a savanah by the edge of the ocean there was a lion. This lion was very selfish. One day he was out hunting and saw a hare. He ran as fast as he could and soon he cornered it. The lion was about to eat the hare when he saw a walrus by the water's edge and he ran after it.
BUT the walrus rolled into the water. The lion swam after it but the walrus was too fast for the lion and it swam away to safety. Then a shark came and bit the lion and a big wave came and washed the lion back to the shore. The lion picked himself up and went after the hare. However, the lion fell lover and hurt himself and never caught the hare.
The lion had to go hungry that day.

Moral of the story:
It is sometimes wiser to be content with what you have. (or you may end up with nothing)

In the Attic is...

A black tarantula creeping up my leg.
A slithering snake strangling my neck.

A dead body inside a guillotine block.
And the only sound is the stairs creaking
like someone was coming up.

In the attic is.......
A bloody knife stuck through a zombie's head.
An old wrinked witch with warts all over her.
A young man with his head cut off.
A dead man with a head in his stomach.
A skeleton drinking beer and it squirting out of his stomach.
And the only sound is footsteps coming from the stairs.
